To be named as best in Asia, 200 companies were the highest ranked on Great Place to Work® Best WorkplacesTM National lists across the region. This recognition is based on confidential survey data assessing employee experiences of trust, innovation, company values and leadership.
Companies are also evaluated on how well they are creating a For AllTM workplace experience, inclusive of all employees no matter who they are or what they do. This year, COVID-19 brought physical and mental well-being front of mind for both employers and employees.
On average, companies ranked on the Best Workplaces in AsiaTM scored 10% better than those that made it to the National list level — an incredibly high bar as such workplaces are the best of the best in their own country. The Best Workplaces in AsiaTM had 15% more employees report:
- Feeling that management involves people in its decision-making
- Receiving special and unique benefits
- Receiving a fair share of the profits made by the organization
How Great Place to Work® determines the Best Workplaces in AsiaTM
Great Place to Work identifies the Best Workplaces in Asia by analyzing companies’ workplace programs and surveying employees across Asia and the Middle East about the key factors that create great workplaces for all.
To be considered, companies must first be identified as outstanding in their local region by appearing on one or more of our Best WorkplacesTM lists in Greater China (including China, Hong Kong and Taiwan), India, Japan, Philippines, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Korea, Sri Lanka or UAE during 2020 or early 2021.
Companies rank in three size categories: Small and Medium (10-499 employees); Large (500+); and Multinational. Multinational organizations are also assessed on their efforts to create great workplaces across multiple countries in the region. They must appear on at least two national lists in Asia and the Middle East and have at least 1,000 employees worldwide with at least 40% (or 5,000) of those employees located outside the headquarters country.
